Stepping out for a media appearance, Mindy Kaling showed up at “The Late Show with David Letterman” yesterday (September 17).

The “Office” cutie had a great time chatting with Dave about her life in New York City before she hit it big in the entertainment business.

Namely, Mindy relied in a babysitting gig to make ends meet- “I’m not a great babysitter. I am good at some things by the way… but I am not a great babysitter. I was babysitting 11-year-old girls, which for me is right in my wheelhouse of people that I do well with because I sound like an 11-year-old girl. Also, because they want to talk about the same kinds of things, so I’m like, ‘Yeah, sure let’s talk about boy bands and things like that.’”

“I really liked that job because when they went to sleep, and these were rich kids I would babysit for, I could put on Showtime at the Apollo, put on a rich lady’s kimono, and eat all the food in their fridge.”

Kaling added, “I was a broke 22-year-old, and there was a cashmere kimono… of course!”
